I use Synergy to sync mouse and keyboard between desktops.

I have thought of adding the custom icons to the source, compiling said source and installing... But that would defeat the purpose of icon themes and in the future I would want to use different icons with different icon themes without the hassle of compiling source each time; I don't think it is within the scope of this problem to consider compiling from source with custom icons.
